    “Victim to Victor” by Heidi LaMarr
    Victims of deadly
    Violence of all kinds leads to
    Voices shouting in the streets,
    Vehement crowds coming together to sing,
    Songs sung about the fight.
    It
    I’m proud of who I am today,
    Woman, mother, daughter, teacher, friend,
    Strong, brave, sensitive, unique
    Not always right,
    Not always wrong.

    But always one
    Who loves another.
    Who fights for the weak with my words not my fists,
    Who stands in support of those who feel invisible,
    A victor.
